Our school has established a School Board whose elected members work with the Principal and community to achieve the best outcomes for students.
Our Board seeks to attract a broad cross-section of people with a range of experience and expertise. Strong community and industry representation ensures the Board can make an even more significant contribution to the development of the school.
The Board upholds the vision for the school that reflects the aspirations and needs of our broad school community. The Board influences the strategic direction and governance of the school, with members bringing ideas and lending their expertise to strategic planning, and community partnerships. Professional skills in areas such as management, finance, procurement, marketing and cultural knowledge strengthen the school’s capacity to meet the needs of its students.
Board membership includes elected parents, elected staff and invited members of the community and the Principal. A comprehensive induction is provided for all board members and Board Training is made available by the Department of Education through on-line modules.
The Independent Public School board is a signatory to the Delivery and Performance Agreement with the Principal and Director General.

As an Independent Public School, the Board is tasked with helping maintain the high standards of Education at this school through policy review, the co-development of the Business Plan, and the continued review of the school’s results and achievements.
Each Term, the Board calls for nominations from staff, who notice other members of the School Staff Community exemplifying these standards, making our school a better place for its students. These awards are an important part of the feedback the Board receives from the School, as they capture what values and actions the Staff at the School value the most.
